Old Royal Naval Academie, Greenwich

I did not know, at the time, what was its name.

What I remembered vividly from my first visit was the marvellous Painted Hall, which in itself is very worth the visit of Greenwich.

In French we call them "false bas relief", and there are some in Paris too, but I do not think on this scale, in a huge hall all around!

Two dimensional paintings looking like three dimensional statues. Here is an example of it.
